In the Community

I would like to focus my oral history project on the life history of an individual within the Egham community. My goal is to interview someone from one of the local churches or the pastor. The topic would center around the individuals life, focusing on a particular aspect depending on the individual, and the historical changes that have taken place throughout their lifetime. I have chosen to focus on this area because of the importance of capturing these individual stories and experiences while it is still possible. Life history interviews hold great significance for public oral history because it provides a personal experience and understanding of events beyond what we can learn solely from books.
